Hopefully we are at the end of this neverending winter and I, for one, am starved for fresh produce. I am dying for fruit and veggies that aren't sad and wilted and trucked in from some more fortunate climate. I'm certain I'm about to perish from scurvy.
So I was at Whole Foods yesterday (which is about an hour and a half away from where I live now, so it was a treat) and they had a lot of good looking produce! My strawberries are just shy of perfect but my watermelon is pretty sweet and I randomly picked up a grapefruit because it just smelled so delicious.
I don't normally eat grapefruit so I Googled some ideas because I wanted to maybe do a brulee top and...salt. Don't put sugar on your grapefruit, people, it will only amplify the tartness. Salt your grapefruit and the natural sweetness will come through. Genius!
Also? Bananas. Slice up your bananas (they should be ripe but still pretty firm) and dunk them in sour cream or Greek yogurt. Then roll them in coconut flakes and put them in the fridge to set. It makes such a delicious, sweet treat.
I also bought an avocado for two freaking dollars, which saddened my Southern California soul, I must say. But I am so desperate for an avocado. I often just halve them, slather on some Sriracha, and dig in with a spoon. But you can also make avocado pudding, which is amazing. You just mix in a little almond milk and honey with your avocado and blend to a pudding consistency. You can also add cocoa and sugar if you want it chocolate.
Let's talk about some of our favorite ways to eat fresh fruits and veggies. Any good kitchen hacks for people who are more of the french fry tribe?
